“I’ve worked with several good trainers and Doug has made the most impact in the shortest amount of time. I believe this is because of his knowledge and attention to my specific needs. Doug has special ability to know exactly how hard to push me and exactly what I need each time we work together. Not only that but Doug has actually tried to teach me what he knows about fitness and why we’re doing certain things instead of keeping the knowledge to himself. I’ve worked with different trainers with different styles. Doug has seemed to mesh all of those styles together to produce an eleven pound muscle gain in eleven weeks. Just look at the pictures…”

“Doug and his team manage the whole fitness process for me…”

Doug brings a professionalism and strong educational background in exercise science that is a breath of fresh air in an industry that is frankly crowded with over-eager salespersons pushing the latest fads.

From my first meeting with Doug, he was quoting recent scientific studies that directly related to my fitness goals. When I ask questions, it isn’t uncommon for Doug to take out his clipboard and draw a quick graph to succinctly explain, for example, muscle recovery or the relationship between hunger, food and blood-sugar levels.

Before starting training with Personal Fitness Advantage, I had reduced my workout to almost nothing out of fear of reinjuring my lower back. Doug and his team carefully considered my back injuries when crafting my fitness plan. The routine they made for me increases my lower back strength so that I can work out my whole body without aggravating my back injury. I’ve never had to remind them of my injuries; they were on top of it.

This leads to my favorite part of my experience with Personal Fitness Advantage so far: Doug and his team manage the whole fitness process for me. I no longer have to pour over magazines or Web pages to find the right exercises. I no longer have to worry about injuring myself with the wrong exercise or form, and most importantly for me, I no longer feel like I’m wasting my time in the gym doing all the wrong exercises. It as it I handed them all my workout stress and said, “Here, you deal with it.”
Lauren Rosenfarb, Plantation, FL

“Through a steady common sense approach, he has helped me to increase my fitness and lose around 50 lbs. so far.”

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Personal Fitness Advantage and Tom as my personal trainer. I am pleased that I am making good progress towards my goals, but just as importantly I have enjoyed the process of working with Tom to achieve them. Tom’s attitude and professionalism have been a particularly good fit for my approach to my goals. Through a steady common sense approach, he has helped me to increase my fitness and lose around 50 lbs. so far. Tom possesses an expansive arsenal of exercises and techniques which keep the workouts fresh and many can be applied at home or when I travel. Since I have been working with Tom for several months now, I especially appreciate that each workout is a positive combination of routines that are challenging and often surprising. I highly recommend Personal Fitness Advantage and Tom to anyone who appreciates results without any hype."
Jim Ballenger, Plantation, FL

"All the difference in the world"

"Doug, the program you developed for me rocks! I love it. I have noticed an incredible difference in the tone of my body, especially in my legs and abs. I saw a friend last night that I haven't seen since the beginning of August and he was raving about how good I look. The extra push and knowledge I get with you makes all the difference in the world."
Michelle Maruca, Bowling Green State University Student, Bowling Green, OH

"Most cutting-edge program available"

"Doug is a great motivator and specialist in exercise training. I know I am getting the most cutting-edge program available."
Dr. Edward Whipple, Vice President of Student Affairs, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH

"One of the best investments I've made recently"

"Doug, your program is one of the best investments I've made recently."
Dr. Robert Guion, Retired Faculty, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH

"Patiently listens to my preferences,concerns and goals"

"Doug's expertise as a trainer is apparent when he sits down with me to plan out my monthly program. He asks and then patiently listens to my preferences, concerns, and goals for my program. He knows that if I don't like it, I will not stick to it and then plans accordingly, giving me variety in the types of exercises that will be included. I am also impressed that he works well with me, as an older woman, showing that he is able to work with a wide variety of people."
Karen Lusiak, Bowling Green State University Graduate Student, Toledo, OH

"A new, innovating approach"

"Doug, I feel that you bring a new, innovating approach through educating and training that lacks in the fitness market today."
Ricardo Viera, Physical Educator, Orlando, FL

"Extremely knowledgeable"

"Doug is not only extremely knowledgeable, but is also very patient and happy to answer questions. He is very understanding and considerate of his clients' ages (I am retired). He acts, in my opinion, in a fine way - beyond what may be expected at his young age.
Robert Heidler, Retired Staff, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH

"One of the top fitness professionals"

"Doug has proven to be one of the top fitness professionals that I have ever met. He possesses all of the qualities that are necessary to deliver fitness results to his clients."
Tom Siebenaller, ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Lifetime Fitness, Columbus, OH

"A valuable asset for any client...he gives you the truth...and backs it up with scientific research and references"

"Doug's knowledge, experience, professionalism and pure enthusiasm for overall fitness and wellness couple with his constant need to obtain the latest "information" in his field, make him a valuable asset for any client. Doug does not tell you what you want to hear, he gives you the truth … and backs it up with scientific research and references. Doug has continuously proven successful for myself, and I strongly feel his knowledge can help you as well."
Dave Hollinger, Facility Manager, Student Recreation Center, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH

"Has a knack for problem-solving...able to look at the big picture"

After working with Doug for almost a year, I can attest as well as anyone that he knows what he is talking about when it comes to health and fitness. Don't be fooled, however, into thinking he will spout off technical jargon without providing an explanation. To the contrary, he works very hard to explain a concept and in doing so, backs it up with the most current applicable research.

Doug is a professional, first and foremost but that does not stop him from taking a personal interest in my progress. I have always felt like a person, whom he takes seriously, not simply money in his pocket. He has worked hard to provide me with the tools that I can use to take charge of my health and fitness. He is very goal-oriented and has a knack for problem-solving, able to look at the "big picture" when sometimes I cannot.

Many people have a warped view of personal trainers as people who are paid to "kick your butt" or put you through a mini "boot camp." Doug will make you work hard but NEVER at the expense of safety. I have always found working with him to be enjoyable and a learning experience.

Would I recommend Doug Jackson? Yes, without qualification. In the past, I referred friends to him and I will continue to do so, because I believe that he can help them, and you, improve your fitness level and ultimately, your life.
Jennifer Kralik, BA, MA, Ontario,CA
